Muscle-Centric Medicine

Improving muscle health through a protein-smart diet, exercise, and lifestyle shifts, improve long-term health, reset your metabolism, reduce chronic disease, slim and strengthen the body, and boost overall energy and wellness.  

About Dr. Gabrielle Lyon

Perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of Dr. Lyon’s methods, the dietary habits she recommends help eliminate fat and build muscle, allowing for continued metabolism boosts and better health. The trick is to eat the right kinds of protein, and enough of them, at each meal. This stimulates the body’s natural muscle-building process, called “muscle protein synthesis”. 

Another way to stimulate muscle protein synthesis is through exercise. More than just physical activity, adults need muscle-targeting exercises to ensure long-term health and decreased risk of chronic disease.

Let’s be honest, though. Making changes in diet and exercise habits is a difficult process—one that requires more than just a good meal plan. Dr. Gabrielle Lyon uses holistic medicine to identify the emotional, environmental, and psychological factors that influence each patient.
